Full Description

Located by the modern gate at the end of the public road to the South Sutor battery is a semi sunken bunker which was a Royal Navy engine house for the Port War Signal Station, Navy camp and the controlled minefield. Local residents however report that wooden shelving for shells was removed in the 1950's from this building. It is similar in layout to the other engine house just to the ESE (see MHG59091). <1>
